There was no shortage of incident as the Blues picked up just one point from their weekend fixtures.
Arlesey took a 1-0 lead in at the break at home to AFC Sudbury on Bank Holiday Monday thanks to Stevenage Boro loanee George Brinkman.
Jamie Osbourne then went close to a second after jinking his way in from the left only to see his shot hit the side netting.
AFC Sudbury had a generous free-kick just outside the box after the break which gave the Blues keeper no chance and level the scores.
Then AFC Sudbury took the lead before Arlesey had a goal disallowed and the visitors hit a third.
Osbourne did score Arlesey's second near the end but it was too late to save the day or a point.

The Blues lost a two-goal lead and had two players red carded in Saturday's 3-3 away draw at Atherstone Town.
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Luke Barlone gave the Midland Alliance champs the lead in the 48th minute before Liam Beaumont levelled eight minutes later.
Osbourne struck twice in three minutes to firmly hand the initiative to the Blues.
Then Atherstone's Lee Greening was brought down in the 76th minute and after Matt Waldron was dismissed, Kyle Storer netted from the penalty spot.
And it got worse as Matt Clarke brought down Storer in the box in the dying seconds.
Clarke was shown red and Storer picked himself up to convert his second spot-kick of the afternoon.
